Cut while skydiving will a person bleed faster?

So my buddy and I watched that old Keanu Reeves film Point Break the other night, and we got to talking. We're thinking that more air pressure causes you to bleed at a more furious pace. So if someone's in a knife fight in a plane, is cut, say across the arm, then jumps out of the airplane to parachute to the ground - will they bleed to death before they hit the ground because the air pressure is causing them to bleed so quickly? It doesn't have to be skydiving, it could be on like, Everest. Will you bleed crazy fast higher up? I know that there are a lot of variables here, but I'm just curious if the thinking is sound.

Why is Plastic Model Breaking, How Best to Replace Parts

Do unassembled plastic model kits become brittle or warped over time? Is there a preferable medium for building replacement parts? I'm assembling MPC's The Strange Changing Vampire (1970s) and pieces are breaking. I think it is styrene. One piece just didn't fit; I tried heating with a hair dryer (ineffective) and hot water (ruined the piece). I can replace it but the ones that broke are moving parts, essential to the function of the model. How-Not-Tu-Do-Torial in progress.

Philosophical question about relationships: Is 100% mutuality required?

Philosophical question about relationships: Is 100% mutuality required? By which I mean: Boy wants to be with girl. Girl isn't so sure s/he wants to be with boy. Shouldn't boy then not want to be with girl since she doesn't want to be with him, i.e. doesn't appreciate him for what he is, doesn't love him the way he deserves to be loved?

What to do in the Laurel, Maryland area for College student on summer break? That is the question. I am sitting at home everyday just playing games and reading and it is extremely boring.

How to pull cable using existing cable

Our home builder installed cat6 network cable for me as a favor, but now that we've moved in, a cable tester now reports it as shorting out. Wires 5&6 are shorting. I guess they treated the cable too roughly. Does anyone have any advice for me on using the old cable to pull new cable through the walls to the second floor? If I was to install a messenger cable for future pulls at the same time, what should I use for that? [more inside]

How to stay a Indie. Contractor?

I have been freelancing as TV producer for one company for over 6 months now working on various projects. The boss thinks he needs me to stand down for a few weeks to keep my independent contractor status. All of the IRS info I have found is vague on the point of continuous employment. How long will I have to stand down (aka take the vacation I want to take) before I can return to this company? And legally how long is too long to be a contactor for one company (when does the IRS question contractor vs. employee)?

Recommendations for beaches in the Florida panhandle region over Christmas break

We've made a last minute decision to head to Florida over Christmas break. We'd like to stay somewhere in the panhandle region since it would be a fairly short drive for us (currently living in Alabama). Any recommendations for a particular beach/city? We'd like a place that's laid back, family oriented, and has nice clean sandy beaches to walk on and pick up shells. None of us cares for night life or shopping, but a good running/bike trail would be a plus.
